The property

This detached property lies at the northern end of Gorumna Island in County Galway, just three miles from Lettermullen and Lettermore.

This charming detached cottage and its surroundings will whisk you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and is ideal for families and friends looking for a peaceful break in the great outdoors.

There is a spacious well-equipped kitchen which includes a small dining table, so guests can keep the chef of the party company whilst preparing delicious home-cooked meals.

A dining table large enough to seat all your guests is provided in the sitting room, where after dining you can retire on one of the comfortable sofas with a glass of wine whilst gazing out at the Atlantic Ocean.

There are four well-presented bedrooms, two of which are on the ground floor along with the family bathroom.

Outside the cottage, the terrain is truly of Connemara with limestone outcrops, heather and gorse, mountains and sea.

The area is steeped in Irish language, tradition and culture.

Visit the local pubs and enjoy a glass of Guinness with the locals as they converse in Gaelic or seek out some of the traditional seafood restaurants in the area.

A day trip to nearby Rossaveal with its daily ferries to the Aran Islands of Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer is a truly memorable experience.

Further afield you can travel to the bustling town of Clifden, an oasis in the west to savour the local traditions and cuisine or drive west to Galway City and immerse yourself in all that is truly Irish.

Inis Barra and its wonderful surroundings exudes everything with the letter 'R'- relaxation, refreshment, respite and you certainly won't be disappointed.
